Evie is so excited about the upcoming holidays! She wanted to get into the Halloween spirit by having some friends over to work on different crafts.
Craft #1 - Decorated Pumpkins
Evie and her friends had a great time using stickers to put faces on the pumpkins. They then wrote their names on the back with a Sharpie marker. The stickers were purchased at a pumpkin patch but you could use any type of stickers you find at the store. Do you want to save a few bucks? You can also decorate squash. They are on sale right now at most grocery stores! Evie found some at Kroger for $0.77 per pound. Some were even orange with stems on top - they looked just like lighter colored pumpkins! (enlarge the top picture with the pumpkins/squash at the center of the table - you can see the slight difference between the two)
Craft #2 - Crayons, Construction Paper and Halloween Stickers
Evie found foam Halloween stickers, construction paper, and crayons at the Dollar Tree. She also picked up a clear table cloth to make sure no one got crayon marks on the table! What an inexpensive way to have some Halloween fun!!
And a Halloween Craft Day wouldn't be complete without some Halloween food!! Everyone enjoyed Ghost Pepperoni Pizza for lunch. You just pinch out 2 eyes and a mouth on each pepperoni to make a ghost!
And Dirt Cups with Worms for dessert. Evie thought it was extra cool that the kids got to mash up the Oreo cookies themselves! They each had a Ziplock bag with their initial on it, and got to go to town on several cookies!
Evie wishes everyone a Happy Halloween!!
